before the cost a higher education. do not take out loans on average if you think you are going it make $5000 don't take out more than $50,000 in loans. finally this one hurts. figure out how much you need to save by retirement. to do that. multiply your current income by 25. that means if you make $50,000 a year, you will need a net egg of at least 1 million $250,000. these are all guideline. but they are really good rules of thumb when you think about life planning and these plans are so important. particularly retirement. that number you have for retirement down let that stop you from starting. absolutely. every little bit helps. value compound interest if you start when you are young and start suck ago way the cash.
